Thumbs up NeverWet: Is This DIY Magic?

Saw it on Reef Builders:


I'm more excited about applications that don't involve using it inside the tank. So many possibilities for stands and equipment.

Wow man. I wonder how breathable it is since they are using it on clothing and flammable wise. But that is amazing.

That's incredible! I agree with you about the stand, there would definitely be no worries about water damage. I'm sure if it could be used on an iPhone it could be used on power strips/timers and other electronics, which would be nice IMO.

I would be a little hesitant to use it on my phone though lol

I literally love my aquarium(s).

I wonder if you coated lily pipes with it (assuming it was safe), would that prevent them from getting nasty? Pretty fascinating stuff. I also wonder how long it lasts.

I'm sure there will be lots of uses for this.

I wouldn't risk it with high-end pipes like those pieces of art from ADA.

Would be less apprehensive with cheap eBay pipes.

Really looking forward to coating some shelving and a work area in the tank room.

So, if used in a shrimp tank for any reason, is it toxic?

Also, can this be used to coat items in a tank?

Will algae grow on this?

No clue on toxicity, as I haven't seen a material safety data sheet yet.

Betting it's probably no worse than using spray paint in a tank.

That said - outside the tank possibilities seem endless.

Update: Also excited about the possibility of using this on the internals of cheap HOBs like those from RedSea. Could help extend time between cleanings on those cheap little impellers and on intake tubes.

I answered my own questions. For $20 it only covers about 10 feet. It has a topcoat that dries milky white as well- not clear. It doesn't hold up to uv and flakes off anything flexible. Also doesn't hold up to washing. Think I'll save my money for now.

I saw this stuff a few months ago. Pretty amazing. I like the application for concrete tools. Stuff just falls right off the tools when its coated in that never wet stuff.

I wish I could coat my arm with it when I have to work in the tank.

Just picked some up to coat the work sinks in my tank room and in the basement.

Even if I have to apply it a couple times a year, the billions of hours I'm saving cleaning those two sinks is well worth $20.

Didn't inform my other half, so let's find out if I ever hear about what a great job I'm doing keeping those sinks spotless.

It's the same stuff as the magic sand, just something that makes objects hydrophobic. Youtube it, it's pretty cool to watch.

I think I remember a homemade version of the magic sand by using Static Guard on sand.

Here's the MSDS for the topcoat: http://www.rustoleum.com/MSDS/ENGLISH/274234.PDF It is made of silicones and siloxanes. That makes me think that if the coating is properly cured it wouldn't harm anything in an aquarium. The idea that it could prevent algae from growing on hardscape items is very interesting!
